One of our favorite watch releases from last year was Casio’s G-Steel line of G-Shock timepieces. It took everything that was already great about G-shocks, but imbued them with metal on both the case and the band. Well, now the G-Steel has evolved a good deal more with the introduction of the new B100 smartwatches.
This watch still boasts many of the features that made the original line great – including shock resistance, water resistance to 200 meters, solar charging, and stainless steel cases. But it also improves on the line in some major ways, both aesthetically and in regards to the tech within. For instance, these new watches have carbon fiber bezels, are offered with either metal or resin bands, and have Bluetooth phone connectivity and a host of smart functions – such as 300 world time cities, dual dial world time with home city time swapping, and a handy phone finder function built-in. They’re not officially for sale yet, but we can hope to hear word on pricing and availability in the near future.
